Year-End Giving

  About This Fund

A gift to the Global Mission Fund is restricted support for our national- and international-level work as a Synod, and can be used to support any Witness (evangelism/outreach), Mercy (human care) and Life together activity approved by the Synod’s Board of Directors under the annual operating budget (Learn More).  Global Mission Fund dollars are agile, available to affect any Gospel-centered, mission-driven activity wherever the need is greatest at the time the gift is received.  Global Mission Fund gifts are efficient to administer, generally costing 4% less than other restricted types of donations. Only unrestricted gifts cost less to administer. Global Mission Fund gifts are flexible, meaning multiple single donations can be combined together and grouped with more tightly restricted donations to have a significant impact on ministry efforts.  To learn more about the Global Mission Fund, contact our Mission Advancement staff at 888-930-4438 or email
